The idea of moving out of the familiar surrounds of home and into assisted living can often be a frightening thought for many older Australians. A life time of memories in a family home which are being left behind. Maybe it could be immediately following the passing of their loved one and primary carer or just the prospect of facing one’s latter years and failing health or mental agility – there are plenty of reasons for apprehension.
And its usually because of these issues and others, that the decisions are left to adult children to make for their aging parents. But where to start? Usually having a chat with mum or dad is a good starting point, as is their doctor to understand their current and future care needs.
Then it’s a matter of considering the various option around care – in their home, in your home, assisted living, full time care. Once these issues are worked through, then comes the financing – self funded, council assisted, government care, facility bonds and entry costs, Centrelink and daily care fees.
